I’ve been reduced to using The Hand Treatment on my face thanks to my hobby. http://jen-spec-industries.com/ It’s not so bad for your skin…but it pales in comparison to the actual creme. The Kate Sommerville- ExfoliKate is a miracle worker though. That is if you like…

My new beauty regimen

As a beauty writer, I’ve sampled all manner of cleansers–from cheapo brands to pricey elixirs housed in glass decanters–and have found something to be desired from nearly all. Some made my oily-ish skin too dry and flake-prone. Some felt way too heavy and left behind…

Glitterette Girl Crush Part 2.

Question: How adorable is Zooey Deschanel? Answer: Pretty freakin’ adorable! I’m completely smitten with her cool girl gamine style, the way she manages the whole sexy-without-taking-off-half-your-clothes thing and her classic (and never overdone) approach to beauty.

Backstage at Jeremy Laing, models were treated to an ethereal, minimalist look courtesy of MAC makeup artist extraordinaire Hung Vanngo and hair guru Marco Santini of ION Studio. Skin was very sheer and natural with just a bit of concealer and muted brows and lashes.…
